Hey J, not one of my favs, but if memory serves, many of the 70 yr shows that I enjoy, the "acoustic/demi-electric/pseudo-electric" shows (as Bob called them) have good versions (eg, 6-7, 9-20, etc.) that you should check out given Jerry's voice was usually right on during these sets with gospel tunes such as Swing Low and RMcFall, etc.

Jerry's voice was pretty right on up until 77 I think. he never recovered from those those multiple laryngitis episodes ( from smokin things I'm sure )in 78 imo. His voice just got weaker and weaker then eventually permantly screwed. Never to hear that sweetness again.

it's not my fav per se but I always find myself enjoying it. This is a tune I think got better as they went on. I always look forward to the solo which is why I prefer the electric version although it works both acoustically and electrically.

Ah, I don't have much experience of that kind (electic), but do agree with CLIFF that the Alfred show one is good...

Hey Johnny--I love this tune also. Check out this version. My absolute favorite...also jibes w/your theory it got better over time (see...i don't ONLY like '77 ;-)

Another late great vocal rendition and a fav. of mine is this one http://www.archive.org/details/gd1989-04-05.sbd.walker-scotton.miller.83501.sbeok.flac16. Not most powerful rendition but always puts a smile on my face listening to it for some reason.

I was lucky enuff to be at that show...can recall freaking out how amazing that candyman sounded...'bout to check out both your '91 versions! Thanks for the recommendations...

Damn! Unreal effects--what is that, a wah-wah?--on the 6/25/91, and dare I say...Garcia in strong voice? Stronger than the rest of the boys, it seems...very nice indeed.

as you should.

Nice Terrapin from that Omni show & an above average Truckin'...but the Candyman was the highlight for sure.
